Parallel backups

Dean W shared this idea 23 months ago
Planned

Would love to have the ability for the job to run 4 - 5 backup accounts at once, instead of 1 at a time.

This would speed up the restore process for large servers.

This has been implemented.

Please see https://docs.jetbackup.com/manual/whm/Settings/performance.html ("Concurrent Scheduled Tasks")

This doesn't work in the way it was intended in this feature request.

The idea is that 1 backup job, could perform say 5 cPanel backups at once. Setting 'Concurrent Scheduled Tasks' does not do this.

Dean,


Seems like you are correct, apparently we closed the wrong issue here.

We do have an open internal issue for this feature, it's planned for v4.1 (since there are major core changes to implement this).


We are now re-opening this issue and will update accordingly.


Thanks!

Hello,


Is there any progress / ETA on this please? I believe this to be the number one feature missing. We have now set up 7 seperate backup jobs on the servers, each applying a filter where we group by first character of the username, but some of these tasks happen to include the large accounts, so they still run longer.

I really don't understand why this feature hasn't been prioritised more...

Hi David Heremans,


I'd just like to share that this feature has been integrated on our new JetBackup core, JetBackup 5! This new core will serve as the underlying foundation for all our upcoming major JetBackup updates and releases across multiple platforms, including JetBackup for DirectAdmin(out now on Alpha) and JetBackup for cPanel which we expect to release late this year.


This new core lets JetBackup move from Cron-based to process-based tasks and allowed our developers to implement true multi-threaded/parallel execution of backups, restores, and other JetBackup tasks.


Please follow this feature request as well as our social media channels for the latest announcements and updates. Thank you for your patience and continued support of JetBackup!


Highest Regards,

Anton, JetApps Team.
